This year, 1st Year and Transition Year students will be participating in the Young Social Innovators programme as part of their Religious Education programme. Young Social Innovators (YSI) is a non-profit organisation that empowers young people to use their talents, insights, passion and creativity to come up with innovative solutions to social challenges. Through fun and engaging programmes, students are supported to create team-based action-projects on issues they care about, putting their innovative ideas into action to bring about positive social change for the benefit of people, communities and the environment. Having taken part in previous years, John the Baptist Community School is delighted to have so many students involved in the coming year.
The school has been selected to take part in a research survey as part of the YSI programme. The students will be doing the survey in their RE classes. In order for the students to take part in the survey, we would be very grateful if parents and guardians gave their consent for students to take part. There is an online consent form that must be completed. You can access the consent form by clicking on the following link https://survey.sogosurvey.com/r/Wsba3A . It should only take you a couple of minutes to complete. Many thanks.
